this enhances equal education opportunity. The introductory chapter offers an overview of key concepts and
the principal debates related to the literature on inclusive education.
In each of its four sections the book includes papers that discuss various faces of educational policies aimed
to promote equal education opportunity in different contexts. After a journey of comparative overview
of research and evaluation projects on education inclusion covering fifteen post-communist countries in
Europe and Central Asia, the second section treats aspects related to educational governance issues to
promote inclusive education. The third part of the book addresses the challenges Roma students face in
education, and the concluding chapter inquires about the link between resource allocations on propensities
of educational inclusion.
